Daily Pump Trap: 6/22/17 edition

A (very) few of this week's positions at C&EN Jobs:

"Palo Alto, CA or Wilmington, DE": DuPont is looking for an industry recovery engineer to look at bioprocessing.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) "1000+", 342, 9,066 and 30 positions for the search term "chemist."

LinkedIn shows 3,070 positions for the search term "chemist" and 17,846 for the search term "chemistry." Job titles from LinkedIn - first with quotes, and the second without: Polymer Chemist: 11/607. Analytical chemist: 184/254. Research chemist: 39/50. Synthetic chemist: 12/583. Medicinal chemist: 16/45. Organic chemist: 30/70. Process chemist: 17/45. Process development chemist: 4/5. Formulation chemist: 44/53.

Reno, NV: So this one is interesting:
The Organic Chemist will be based in Reno, NV reporting to the Director of Research & Development. This position will be primarily responsible for the development of new products and processes for our new activated clay affiliate. 
Specific responsibilities of this position include but are not limited to:
  • Conduct research into optimization of current production processes for our clay products
Why do they need a Ph.D. organic chemist with 2-4 years of post-graduate work for that?
